Lakers’ LeBron James reacts to DeMarcus Cousins’ suggestion he should run for president
James, however, doesn’t seem to be too interested in Cousins’ suggestion:
DeMarcus Cousins has said that LeBron James should run for president. LeBron officially said he’s not interested at today’s practice.

With everything that he’s done in his career off the court, LeBron has cemented himself as the greatest role model of our generation. James’ biggest charity work is his “I PROMISE School” in his hometown of Akron, Ohio last year. Its purpose is to help at-risk children in the Ohio community succeed in school.
LeBron may be in California now playing for the Lakers, but he’s never going to stop making an impact in Northeast Ohio. If you ask James, he’ll tell you that school is much more important to him than the title he brought to Cleveland in 2016 or getting his jersey retired by the Cavs one day. LeBron can relate to a lot of these kids and he wants to make sure their upbringings are better than his.
Lakers fans may elect LeBron the unofficial president of Los Angeles if he’s able to deliver a championship this season. The Lakers currently have the best record in the Western Conference with James and Anthony Davis leading the way.
LeBron is averaging 25.0 points, 7.8 rebounds and 10.8 assists on the season for the Lakers. The four-time MVP is shooting 48.9 percent from the field, 34.5 percent from beyond the arc and 68.7 percent from the free-throw line.
